Silver Mile Merlot 2012

Aaron:  Some mild woodsiness with rocky ocean shores made for an interesting smell.  The flavor was pretty full but a bit too much cranberry made me pucker.  Fortunately some nice vanilla leads to a smooth finish.  89 points

Teri: The nose (smell) is full of oak and earthy dark berries, but don’t let that stop you if you don’t normally like those characteristics in your wine. The flavor is smooth (amazingly smooth) with an easy to drink medium body feel. The tastes of spice are notable but balanced with flavors of strawberry and rich cherry. This wine is very easy to drink and yet still has bold characteristics for those who yearn for something “big” in their glass. 93 points
